If you're installing Nterprise Linux Services and it times out looking for the LDAP server, or you get a treename failure, here's a word to the wise.

Make sure the right IP address is specified in the /etc/hosts file.

It might look like the following:

127.0.0.1     localhost.localdomain      localhost 
192.168.80.130      svr1.novell.com     svr1 

Make sure DNS is configured correctly for your environment.

You can test this by doing a DIG @ipaddressofserver nameofserver (i.e. DIG @192.168.80.130 svr1.novell.com). There should be an ANSWER SECTION with the server name there, and the IP address of that server.
